Sunny Sunday Sketch - Week 19

WOOHOO!! Now we're really back! Two weeks in a row and the sketches keep coming! Here's my sketch for this week:

In this case, the card came first, and I based the sketch on it.

The card is DH's Christmas card for his co-workers. I make it every year. This year when I asked him how many he needed, he said, "Let's see...everyone is in the same building 210." HA!!! I told him he could have the first 25 for free and after that it was gonna cost him. He settled on 15. Smart man!

I went a little distressing happy on this one, which is probably why it took me FOREVER to make 15 cards. I distressed each of the layers except for the card base.

My card base is 4 1/4" X 11" folded at 5 1/2" and cut at 2 3/4" on the front. I used the 2 3/4" piece of Crumb Cake and trimmed it down to 4" on the long size to use a my mat on the front. There is a similar size mat on the inside of the card too. The inside sports the sentiment. pics of that.

Both pieces of Designer Series Paper come from the Deck the Halls pack which can be found on page 18 of the Holiday Mini (Product # 120810).

I used my sponges as well as sponge daubers to add some colour to the front stamped panel. If you don't have the Stampin' Pastels yet, you should!!!

And, since my Caroline has essentially been teaching me since 2003, there's this:

NO NAKED ENVELOPES!!! I used another image from Lovely as a Tree to stamp on the envelope.

INK: Early Espresso
